This is a legitimate lobster roll. Nothing but lobster, butter and toasted roll. But with that being said maybe I don't like a real lobster roll. It was too rich for me with all the butter. But if you like the real deal give it a try.

Definitely the best lobster rolls we have ever had. Third visit now and quality always consistent The hot dogs also very good. After a morning on the beach, it is nice to sit in a casual place and have good tasting simple food

Along the New England coast there are many lobster shanties. Like the others, Lobster Landing serves very good lobster rolls from a building that looks like it will fall down. But that's part of the charm. Very limited menu but good service and eating outdoors with a view of the harbor. Price has gone up but still a treat.

Sorry Lobster Landing, I really wanted to LOVE this! I was there on Sunday, 9/11/16, around 4 p.m. Made it my business to exit 1-95 and stop there on the way back to NY to see if all of the "best lobster roll" reviews were really warranted. Have to say that I thought it was nothing miraculous or special and... More

Best lobster rolls in CT, I have been going there for years every month they are opened. Freshest lobster meat you will ever eat. Simple menu, lobster rolls, hot dogs and sausage and peppers. Outdoor seating located near the marina, beautiful on any day.

On a day in and day out basis, the best hot lobster roll around. At $13 was a bargain, now at $17.50 not so much. Could be a little bigger for that price. Great to bring byob!

I thought that the lobster roll was okay, but I expected much more for the money. Not sure why everyone raves about it!

I've been here twice. The first time was around 3pm (a year ago), so it was after the lunch rush. I say this because the lobster in my roll was tough and rubbery and I think it was too late in the day and the lobster had sat in the hot butter too long. I came back this year and... More
